NewSci, a Tallahassee big data startup, provides data analytics and visualization for clients nationwide. In 2016, Cuttlesoft helped them simplify the process with a custom web app.
Big data is big business. Thanks to modern technology, organizations can now capture and store vast pools of valuable data with ease. The difficulty comes when transforming all of that raw data into meaningful, actionable information. That’s precisely what Tallahassee big data startup NewSci does for nationwide clients in the healthcare, education, and nonprofit sectors.
Founded by David Lawson and Jay Goulart in Tallahassee, NewSci takes mind-boggling quantities of information and turns them into digestible knowledge. Through analysis, insight, and visualization, NewSci lets organizations make better use of their data.
Despite the insightful analysis they provided, NewSci had a problem. Although their technology stack worked well — Hadoop on top of IBM’s Softlayer for cloud-based data storage and processing, IBM BigInsights for analysis, and Tableau for data visualization — it was intimidating to users and lacked original branding.
That’s where Cuttlesoft came in. The team was charged with creating a beautiful, branded frontend that showcased the Tableau visualizations NewSci creates for clients. That meant building a secure and responsive integration with Tableau that would let NewSci users view their data with ease.
